Eleven Novices Profess First Vows as Augustinians

On July 31, 2016, eleven novices professed their first religious vows as Augustinians at Saint Rita of Cascia Shrine Chapel in Chicago.  The Augustinians in North America have not had this many young men profess their vows at once in decades!

We congratulate the newly professed:  Brother Sarfraz Alam, O.S.A.; Fr. Joseph Broudou, O.S.A.; Brother Bobby Carroll, O.S.A.; Brother Elizandro Contreras, O.S.A.; Brother Adnan Ghani, O.S.A.; Brother Sam Joutras, O.S.A.; Brother Daniel Madden, O.S.A.; Brother Jeff Raths, O.S.A.; Brother Joe Roccasalva, O.S.A.; and Brother Dominic Smith, O.S.A.
